President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the Super Eagles on their victory on Friday over the national team of Iceland in their second match at the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The President in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, on Friday in Abuja, expressed delight at the confidence, discipline, team-work and indomitable spirit displayed by the young Nigerian players.

He urged them not to limit themselves but sustain the current winning momentum by going all out against their last group opponent, Argentina, next week.

“I am confident that if our players believe in themselves they can qualify out of their difficult group and even go very far in the tournament,” he said.

According to him, with determination on the part of the players, nothing is impossible.

The President, therefore, urged all Nigerians to continue to rally round the Nigerian ambassadors with their prayers and other forms of support.

The Super Eagles defeated the national football team of Iceland at the ongoing Russia 2018FIFA World Cup tournament by 2 – 0 through Ahmed Musa in the second half of the game. (NAN)
